“Good food with a Lovely View”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Good range of food and low prices, in fact everything that you would expect from a well run English cafe.

“My favourite cafe”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

You certainly can't beat this cafe for location with wonderful views over Plymouth Sound. The food might not come with jus, or foam, or sugar work, but is good, honest cafe fare and great value, and the staff are always calm and friendly. It's an ideal place for lunch after a swim or a walk along the coast.

“Cafe with great food and fantastic views”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

OK, so yes it is just a cafe but the views are absolutely fantastic and the food is well prepared, cooked and presented. I have stopped here on bright sunny days when you can see all the ships etc for miles and also on wet rainy days when it is great to be sat inside sipping on a hot mug of tea or coffee and enjoying one of a wide selection of lunches. I will definately be back for more!

“JENNYCLIFF CAFE PLYMOUTH”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

There has been a Cafe on this site for over 100 years. It has probably existed so long by a quirky lease structure. The main lease is owned by the MOD who in turn lease the land to the City Council who sub-lease to a private individual. This is probably the main reason it has never been developed. It is well worth a visit if only for the view across Plymouth Sound. The staff are usually friendly - if you smile they do too but beware if you growl. Until the early 90's there was no mains electricity only a small generator and calor Gas. Ahhh! I remember it well. Good luck to all.
